Henry Matthew's Birth

Ready to Go!

There was a pretty bad snowstorm the night before, so I ended up spending the night at the hospital by myself the night of the induction. Barry came early the next morning, and after only a few short hours of labor (and less than 20 minutes of pushing) our sweet Henry was born!

Our baby boy, Henry Matthew, was born on January 3, 2014 at 11:34 am, at 7 lbs 5 oz and 20 inches long. This was Henry in the first few seconds of life...

Ryan came to the hospital to meet his brother the next day, and then again the following morning, before we went home. It was such a special moment for me to see my boys together for the first time. These pictures are so precious to me. My heart is full. xoxo

First "real" bath

Although he got sponge baths at the hospital and after we got home, it wasn't until his belly button stump fell off (11 days old) that Henry got to take his first "real" bath. He wasn't exactly a fan of the water, but he sure did look cute afterwards!

  4. Thank you all for the congratulations! We are so very excited to welcome this sweet baby boy into our family and for Ryan to finally have a brother! I do think that they look alike (as newborns) in the face and with the spiky hair, although they have completely different hair colors and complexions. It will be interesting to see how Henry looks as he gets older. =)

  5. Belated congratulations on sweet Henry! He is gorgeous, and I can't wait to hear more about how all of you are doing!!
